overcompensation of food trucks downtown in union square and fisherman's wharf. when we got involved in the process one thing i quickly realized that we have parts of the city that are effectively o limits to food trucks. for example, this piece of legislation was taken up by you and recommended by the commission months ago if a college or hospital campus happens to be in a residentially-zoned area you are not allowed to put a food truck within that campus, even if it's a large campus. it makes no sense whatsoever. we have legislation that the board of supervisors adopted a number of year end ago putting a large buffer zone around all public middle schools and public high schools. the purpose of that buffer was to protect the school lunch program, so that kids aren't at least easily leaving [kp-eus/] to go to food trucks and also at the time the food trucks were not always necessarily the highest quality and healthfulness of food. there is also an equity concern that kids with more means would be more likely to leave campus. however, 1500' is three city blocks. it's a lot and what it does is that

are safe and they're screened carefully, the european union did this, at least there's movement in that direction, the united states has not yet done this. so, the law that currently regulates chemicals was passed two years after i was born and i'm sorry but i think a lot has changed in the world about what we know about chemicals and what chemicals are used in the duration of most of my lifetime so we could change the laws so that new knowledge is integrated in how we screen chemicals for safety. today we think about 84 thousand chemicals are out there and about 1 thousand more are added each year and most of these, we don't have any human health data for, 90%, no human health data at all and hundreds of these are in our bodies, we know from studies, so we need to pass comprehensive legislation, a couple of weeks ago, tony testified in front of the environment and public works committee on why we need to pass and get the safe cosmetics out there on the floor of that senate, he did a fantastic job and i stole this off the video which is archiving, you can watch it, and this act
have built over the last four years. we convinced all 27 nations of the european union to stop importing iranian oil and all 20 major global importers of iranian oil -- including japan, india, china, and turkey -- to make significant cuts. iran today exports more than one million fewer barrels of crude each day than it did just last year. iran's currency is worth less than half of what it was last november. the pressure is real and it is growing. and let me add, we take pride in the coalition we have assembled, but no pleasure in the hardship that iran's choices have caused its own people to endure. we are making every effort to ensure that sanctions don't deprive iranians of food, medicines, and other humanitarian goods. i travel the world working to help people everywhere take part in the global economy, and we never lose sight of the fact that iranians deserve this no less than any other people. america's goal is to change the iranian leadership's calculus. we have worked with the p-5 plus 1 to put a credible offer on the table. if there is a viable diplomatic deal to be had
